Students expect to have a choice when it comes to course material formats. College stores that can offer a variety of affordable options can better compete with online competition and bring more students to the bookstore. That’s why MBS developed its new wantlist tool, SimpleSource.
SimpleSource helps stores increase college affordability by giving you access to more wholesale inventory at multi-discounted price levels.
“SimpleSource seems to change the economics of the online sourcing proposition. I would definitely encourage others to try it and to leave their wantlists with MBS for as long as they can.”
Jason Katzman, Assistant Director, Academic Resource Support, University of Colorado Bookstore
